If you’ve been following me on Twitter and Facebook you know that last night we arrived at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky for the weekend.

Here’s look at all the waterpark has to offer:

When we arrived we couldn’t wait to get to the indoor waterpark but the first order of business was checking in and dropping everything off in our room. As we walked through the resort, we were excited to see everything decorated for the holidays. The decorations were fun and festive and really helped get us into the holiday spirit.

Kalahari HolidaysAfter our speedy and friendly check-in we went up to our room with the intention of dropping off our bags and heading down to the water park. When we opened the door, Dave and I looked at each other stunned and just said, “Wow.” The room is gorgeous!

Kalahari RoomIt has a large kitchen with a full size refrigerator, a dining area, a living room complete with flat screen tv and fireplace, and a large balcony. Our plans detoured a bit because we had so much fun checking out the room, but soon enough it was time to head down to the waterpark.

Kalahari ResortsKora & Logan were all smiles as we passed through the arcade and headed to the waterpark. There was so much to do and they had such a fantastic time that they could barely wait to wake up today to head back.

  11. Phantom blogger says:

    Why!? Cause my ass needs a vacation. I work 40 hours a week,I go to school part time and I have 3 children…Which includes a set of 5 months old twins.
    I aspire to be a phantom blogger so I can write crazy crap about anything and anyone and not be held accountable.
    Example:…I have to hunt down a fkn reindeer at my work for candy…. And how my hubs said he would drop me off somewhere during a fight and I prayed he would so I could get a hotel room alone for the night.
    Needless to say… He proceeded to drive me home when I mentioned I wouldn’t come home and he d be alone with the kids.
    I need a break and my 6 year old needs a break from the baby twins. Please, oh, please pick me!!!

He works so much anymore, when we do get to see each other, he is usually asleep, ’cause he is so tired. We always have had a great time at Kalahari, and lots of amazing memories!
